Brandy Cocktail: Zinger

Brandy, ginger and lemon is all you need for this simple play on the Penicllin cocktail.

1½ oz. brandy
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 oz. ginger syrup
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: Old Fashioned
Garnish: candied ginger and a few drops of mezcal (optional)

Combine the brandy, lemon juice, and ginger syrup in a shaker, then strain into an Old Fashioned glass over a large ice cube.

Ginger Syrup: Blend 1 oz. of fresh ginger juice with ½ oz. of white cane sugar in a blender until sugar is dissolved. Once dissolved, add a squeeze of fresh honey and blend again.
